Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Description

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland is a widely popular and classic children's tale written by the renowned English author Lewis Carroll. The famous novel follows a curious young girl named Alice, who meets various colorful and eccentric characters in a fantastical world of whimsy and nonsense. Produced in 1907, a variant of the celebrated tale was co-published by William Heinemann (London) and Doubleday Page and Co. (New York). In this particular version, Arthur Rackham creatively illustrates Alice's many episodes with his signature and unique style, which complements Carroll’s imaginative narrative perfectly. His distinct and charming series of thirteen color plates and fourteen line drawings are accompanied with printed tissue overleaf and pictorial endpapers. The copy also features a delightful proem by Austin Dobson at its opening, as well as an intriguing vignette printed within the front and back cover. The cover of the piece is constructed of stamped red cloth, decorated with a colored illustration of The Mock Turtle's Story.


Displayed above, are numerous images which provide excellent repsentations of Rackham's unique creative style. Along with the images of the plates there are pages from the novel where the more simplistic line drawings are shown. Selections from the story related to the plates are also included.
